Luna has landed!

I finished up my Luna Moth Shawl over the weekend and add me to the long list of happy Luna customers in this KAL. Luna was THE pattern, wasn't she? Awesome pattern, SK! Yes, mine is a BIG one and that was intentional. I think I did 7 or 8 repeats of Chart 2. I lost track.
.
Particulars:
Yarn is Austermann Peru held doubled throughout, color 17, merino & alpaca (feels amazing...have I said enough how much I love this yarn?). Needles are Knitpicks' Options size 10. Blocked dimensions are 75" wide by 43" long at center back.

Thanks, Lisa for hosting the KAL! And huge kudos to all the first time shawl and lace knitters who jumped in for this great KAL. I hope everyone gained the confidence to continue.

Please, everyone, don't tell Jayne about this because I just promised her I'd let her finish her shawl before I picked up my Luna again. LOL. See how totally unreliable I am?
